Pretty sure anyone can do #1. That's just argentine law. Anyone who can thrive/survive in argentina for 2 years gets a passport.Update to this post here: https://baexpats.org/threads/documents-necessary-for-citizenship-from-one-parent.44041/#post-421634
The Miami consulate replied to my inquiries of citizenship like this,
> si tu madre nacio en Florida no podemos hacer la ciudadanía aca en Miami, solo puede hacerse en Argentina, cuando los padres no son nativos argentinos.
So I need a lawyer in Argentina to apply. I have emailed various lawfirms from google and have surprisingly gotten 3 different opinions.
1. Need to live there 2 years then apply. No exceptions
2. Can fly in on a tourist visa, apply to judge and reside and wait for updates. 6-8 months. 1000usd paid when I get citizenship. Consider getting a residence permit before arriving(could take 6 months to get it)
3. Can fly in on tourist visa, apply for residence permit(get it in 1 month), then apply to judge. Can take 8 months. 2000usd pay first.
I'm looking for more clarity on this situation since the options are so different. It'd be really unfortunate if I need more documents from other countries while I'm already in Argentina and have to fly to other countries.
1. birth certificates of grandpa, both parents, me
2. certificate of Argentine citizenship of naturalized parent and their DNI
You can apply for citizenship as soon as you arrive in Argentina. I recommend not applying for legal residency because it is the best way to obtain a deportation order. Only in the event that you are going to obtain legal residence should you apply. If you have doubts, don't do it. The advantage of having legal residence is that you can apply for citizenship without a lawyer and save money. Otherwise you should hire a lawyer. There are not many of us who work with citizenship and we work very differently.Hello all. Thank you for all the information you have provided, I am very much new on this platform and have followed the message thread and have seen beneficial information. I kindly want to know if someone comes to Argentina as a student on a study permit, will that also suffice for the 2years residency required to obtain citizenship? secondly, with a study permit, can one get a CUIL and DNI to open bank accounts, rent a car, etc while studying in Argentina. From my understanding, the DNI is needed for many things in Argentina. I have seen a lot of responses from steveinbsas,Bajo_cero2, and many more regarding the Rentista visa. The Rentista visa was my initial option for a pathway to citizenship but after factoring in a lot of things like staying on the visa without working, as the rentista visa does not permit its holders to work in Argentina, I believe getting a student visa and having to study maybe for a master's or Ph.D. will be a wiser idea.
I will appreciate it if anyone can give me a guide as to what pathway will be the most advisable for a foreign national to get Argentina citizenship by naturalization for someone from Africa. Thank you very mu
3-4 days. But it’s coin toss some can be stuck in versification for some time. Generally it should not take longer than 3 weeks to receive it. Mine took 11 days from applying. I would say this is on the faster end and I just got lucky. I am also in CABA and possibly things move faster here.
